Default Paul Williams vs. Floyd Mayweather

I, like many others, were before last night, underestimating Williams. I thought he looked good, but his opposition was extremely low. I did think he would pull off the upset, but I thought it'd be closer than it was, and was making that prediction blind, as it was hard to judge Williams' chin against someone like Margarito. Even his stamina wasn't proven. Sure, he could throw hundreds of shots per round, btu against someone like Margarito? For 12 rounds? I was suprised at how high it stayed.

Now, after that fantastic performance, I have a hard time thinking PBF could win. Is he the better boxer? Abslutely. However, his style is made for a guy like Williams.

PBF will always have a problem against people who have a much higher punch output tha he does. He lost a lot of rounds against DLH because he wasn#t that active. Ditto agaist Castillo. Paul Williams throws over 3 times as many punches as PBF does. That is an insane number. As good as PBF's defence is, eh is without doubt going to land a lot more than Mayweather will.

Mayweather will struggle because of his size as well. With a 10" reach advantage, mayweather is going to struggle to counter punch him. His defence is great, but often relies on boxers coming in to eat those punches. margarito, a boxer bigger than PBF, couldn't keep Williams from hitting him, and I doubt PBF will either.

Power isn't an issue to keep Williams away either. Margo couldn't so neither will Floyd.




Williams has every advantage in the styles department and is an absolute beast physically. Do you pick Floyd over him?

Its high risk low reward for Floyd but he would most likely win.

Floyd is better skilled , better talent indeed , but if the fight was made I'd would pick Williams by UD , I agree with Jack his volume punches/reach would give Floyd lots of trouble and I don't think Floyd would be the one to KO him , because thats the only way I can see him losing.

if they fight now floyd owns him, maybe in a couple of years time, williams really impressed me i thought he didn't have a good chin and was a straight brawler, but he proved me wrong

I would pick Floyd, but it would not be easy. Floyd, for all his amazing skill, would need to be willing to get hit to get inside. Williams reach, height, and work rate makes this a very tough fight for Mayweather.

That's more clear.

Still, there are many here who will say EASY WIN for Floyd. I hate that the board has become full of newbie shit talkers the last few months.

I don't see Williams winning this despite his reach advantage. I think Mayweather is too skilled, too coordinated for Williams.

Are people picking Floyd because it is Floyd? I can see why you would, but I would like to know how Mayweather would beat Williams.

Slow down.

How do you figure he will land, "without a doubt", more than Floyd? He'll throw more and miss more, but I doubt he LANDS more.

Secondly, why does Margarito being hit have anything to do with Floyd? He is bigger, as you put it, but what does that have to do with it? I don't follow your logic in any of this really.
